Sweet Honey in the Rock release new video "Are We Nation?"

With “Are We A Nation?,” Sweet Honey In The Rock has utilized their favorite form of expression – music - to communicate their feelings on the complex issues of immigration and their outrage regarding Arizona’s Law SB-1070. They believe that this law encourages and creates opportunities for hatred, ignorance, and prejudice to prevail. Sweet Honey In The Rock have been using their music to express outrage and compassion, to nurture and empower audiences, to document the times, and to preserve and extend African American vocal traditions since 1973, and to this day their music continues to change people’s lives.
By drawing more attention to “Are We A Nation?” the group hopes to stimulate interest in and debate surrounding the Arizona law SB-1070 to foster an understanding of the broad implications of this law. The band will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of ARE WE A NATION? to The Center for Community Change
